Every month, I go back and forth about blogging about my monthly goals. It feels so silly sometimes. You know? Writing down arbitrary goals every month… chasing after these little dreams… sometimes succeeding, most times failing.
And yet… I love setting monthly goals. Even when it feels silly and first-world-problem-y. It’s just fun to chase after something. It’s fun to envision the little things I want to accomplish – some that are tied to bigger goals I have (like losing weight or writing my novel), while others are just small, one-off goals.
So, monthly goals are here to stay. And here’s what I want to accomplish in March:
1) Spend five hours weekly working on my novel
I barely spent any time on my novel in February, mostly because I hit a roadblock with my novel that made me think I needed to change my novel’s entire plot. And when I did create a new plot, I just… hit a creative wall. I didn’t feel like writing and, quite honestly, it broke my heart to give up the novel I had (mostly) written. I love that original novel and I finally figured out a plan of how I can keep that manuscript. Here’s to lots of writing in March!
2) Watch a documentary on Netflix
I never watch documentaries because I’m either using my TV time to catch up on my DVR or binge on Gilmore Girls. But I want to watch something this month – anybody have any recs?
3) Use MyFitnessPal daily and exercise three times a week
I set a quarterly goal to lose 5 lbs and… I’m a few lbs from doing so. I know I can easily lose the weight as long as I stick to eating well and exercising. So, logging my food on MFP is exactly what I need to do!
4) Find out my Enneagram type.
I love everything about personality tests, and the Enneagram is something I keep hearing about. A few months ago, an Enneagram coach was interviewed on The Lively Show and it was fascinating. Everyone knows about the Myers-Briggs personality assessment (I’m an ISFJ!), but while that test simply tells us what we are, the Enneagram is billed as showing us why we are the way we are. I am so here for that. It’s time to figure out my type!
